Approximately 20 Slo-Mo paddlers and spouses attended the season end picnic on Saturday, Sept 25. The picnic was held at the Parksville Community Park, under ideal sunny skies. The event began with a presentation by Jeff Burdison, a very experienced local kayak guide who gave a talk on what supplies are needed for day and multi day kayak trips. He had his equipment on display and he shared useful tips for a safe and enjoyable day on the water. Jeff is interested in offering workshops on a variety of kayak-related topics and information about these will be posted to the members.
For the remainder of the picnic, the attendees spent time enjoying their picnic lunches, socializing with their fellow members and playing games of Bocci.
This was a great way to bring an end to a successful Slo-Mo Paddlers’ season. I would like end off by thanking Jim Powell for all of his work on helping to organize this event.
